Nightmares On Wax - 70s/80s.mp3

The brainchild of George Evelyn, Nightmares On Wax first appeared in the aftermath of the scene explosion of chill out music. Hailing from the industrial city of Leeds, the then duo, comprising Kevin Harper, established themselves with the seminal Dextrous and Aftermath, characteristic of the bleepy techno sound taking the country by storm, alongside fellow Yorkshireman and label mate Mark Bell, aka LFO. The album that followed, A Word Of Science introduced some elements of hip-hop on tracks like Mega Donutz or Back In Time. By the time the second NOW album surfaced, almost four years later, Evelyn was on his own and the sound had developed into a magnificent blend of hazy soul, lazy beats and lush hip-hop/dub that was to become his trademark. 70s/80s takes control of the seismic and militant 70s 80s, reminiscing about riots, racism and recession during the Thatcher years. This is a splendid piece of soulful laidback dopey dance music hats off to you. To purchase this album click here.
